Product Description

Agatic Agatac (GK280) condenses the intensity of this popular designer’s vision into a small piece of her coloured imagination, barely contained in the classic Swatch format. A series of mosaic-shaped, rough squares of colour, carefully cherry-picked and assembled to evoke feeling, sits along a yellow plastic strap. Almost scratchily inked, the squares have a crayon quality that leaves space in the midst of intensity and summons thoughts of childhood. The dial is inked in the same print, and the hands are a delicate, ladylike pink. The work offers ample evidence of the artist’s gift for colour and her knack for the visually surprising.
